Whatever is your interest in Military affaires or leadership or management and whatever your point of view, this book is absolutely well reading and will help you to deal with the current business management.
Patton was an outstanding General of US Army (probably one of the best skilled at the WWII) a warrior and also professional soldier who spent his life inspiring people to accomplish what it the seemingly impossible. Some pictures of the General help you to visualize one of the great military leader.
The author gathered and grouped the most important of Patton's maxims and provided clear explanations of their applicability to todays's managers or Officers of the Armed Forces, which will no doubt prove useful to anyone willing to try them. With his pragmatic point of view stated that “wars are waged by weapons but they are won by men” or “moral courage is the most valuable and most absent characteristic in men”.
There is a difference between being a leader and being a manager.
I wish colleges (all arenas including masters in business) taught a class that had this information in it. It is my observation that leadership training of this nature is only taught at high $$ seminars and at Military War Colleges. This book is a high $$ seminar for pennies on the dollar. I keep it on my desk beside my computer monitor and read a page every day then reread the previous day's page. Two minutes in the morning and I now find myself unconsciously following the ideas/concepts I read earlier in the week.
I found myself wanting more meat with every page. . . that is not the design of this book. I am sending a copy to my nephew who just graduated the Naval Academy.
